South Bend officer found dead

SOUTH BEND, Ind. An 18-year veteran of the South Bend Police was found dead Wednesday morning.

Police say they received a call of a man-down and not breathing around 5:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of Rock Maple Court.

When medics arrived on the scene of the home, Sgt. Mark Szweda, 45, was already dead.

Szweda was assigned to the uniform division as an afternoon shift supervisor.

An autopsy Wednesday was inconclusive, and it will take several weeks before there are results from toxicology tests.
